Reading that, he would appear by all accounts to have remained celibate.
If true, (and I would rather err on the side of mercy) then he did precisely what he should in the struggle against the sin of 'actively practicing' homosexuality.

One's orientation is not in and of itself, sin.

I already know he is believed to be gay. And I think he is gay.

He has done great work in the 80s and 90s with men who are HIV positive.

He also fought for peace in Irland at that time. Gave a lot to the poor, was working so hard to make sure that to do God's will.

Friend of mine from NYC, said that the leaders of the Catholic Church there gave him a hard time, they usually called him and told him that " He can't do that !! ". Yes, he can't love other people, he can't love gays, he can't show mercy and love to people who the Church showed them hate and discrimination  Roll Eyes

Yet, he was a hero better than the leaders of the Church who sat in the fancy cool buildings. He went to the Twin Towers while people were getting out of them, he stood there by his men and prayed for them and gave blessings to the dying people, and then he died when the South Tower collapsed, he was in the North Tower lobby at that time. So, something from the debris hit him so hard and he died immediately.

Whether he was practicing homosexual or not, it doesn't matter to me and doesn't change the love he had for God and the people.

Pray for me Fr Mychal Judge. Pray for me to have the love you had for all people, pray for me so I may see God's image in all people regardless of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

Stop posting at this forum, start watching the series, not just from 2005 and forward but since the very beginning until the year five billion and twenty-three and beyond. And come to the conclusion that you used the wrong W question... it's Who not what... and the question and the answer as always is the Doctor.

after that please come back posting at this forum :p

Wait a second... I thought this forum was for "religious-nerds" not "nerd-nerds". 

Actually, I recognized the first *clears throat* "companion", so I guess that makes me a casual nerd-nerd.
